This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will replace a sink.  Water is much easier to live with when it flows into a sink.  Let's make it happen!

Here's a guy replacing a sink:


To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - replace a sink (or install a new one)
  - hot and cold water supply
  - drain piping to a septic, sewer, greywater, etc (not a bucket)

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the old sink at the start of the job
  - midway through the replacement
  - the new sink installed
  - view of the drain piping and water supply
  - water coming out of the tap

I'm tiling the floor in the basement bathroom which requires removing the pedestal sink.  Sounds like a BB to me!
